A Trip to the top of Haytor, Dartmoor

This is something to try with friends, family and kids.  The high winds of a few weeks ago made this treacherous, but a sunny day in late winter was perfect.  I stayed at the bottom (as official photographer - nothing to do with my fear of climbing or heights!)

This is the most popular part of Dartmoor.  Easy parking, nearby toilets and an ice cream van in the car park.  It is also doable with children and dogs.  Head to Haytor!

St Patrick's Day - Irish Stew? Colcannon?

I neglected to show photos of our Shrove Tuesday pancakes.  We needed a new frying pan, but my husband did some valiant tossing.  Suddenly, OMG it's St Patrick's Day....We have no lamb for an Irish Stew and I hate Guiness,
but I have plenty of spuds....so I think a roast chicken with some colcannon or champ...ie Mashed potatoes!
